Fairy Lore & Design Concept
The fabric that makes up the center front of the skirt and corset was the inspiration fabric for the entire gown. I wanted something dramatic without coming across as “sinister”. I designed her headdress after the paintings of Alphonse Mucha. The round medallions mimic the applique that is on her corset. Her spindly wings match the shape of the top of her sleeves. I made a small train at the back of the skirt, and I love the way it billows while she’s seated.
